This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 48. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 May 2021.
All research outputs
#604,474
of 19,368,131 outputs
Outputs from Research Integrity and Peer Review
#30
of 105 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#18,830
of 320,395 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Research Integrity and Peer Review
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,368,131 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 96th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 105 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 42.7. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 320,395 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
